GE 5 Cycle Automatic Heavy Duty Extra Large loud noise

All ge dryers have a center bearing on the back side of the drum and drum glides on the frontside. The glides make a scrubbing sound when bad and the drum is hard to turn. The rear bearing does a squeak thang when the plastic bearing wears thin and begins to make metal to metal contact between drum mount and rear bulkhead mount. It is an easy fix but the drum gotta come out. here is my pictorial page that shows how with videos and repair pix:

We overloaded the dryer and now the dryer is making a loud noise

The rear drum bushing or the front drum slides (or both) are probably worn out. You can view the rear drum bushing by removing the small plate in the center of the rear panel. Check if the center pin on the drum is touching the rear drum bushing housing. The rear bushing is made of plastic and is only about 1/16" thick, so look closely. If the loud noise is metal on metal at the rear drum bushing, replace the whole rear bushing assembly (drum center pin, bushing, and housing). Often, the front drum slides also need to be replaced. Check them before you buy the rear bushing. There are two at the bottom front of the drum and four more at the top front of the drum. You'll have to remove the front panel to check them.

Clothing that has small tears from Dryer

If it is a GE/Hotpoint then you need to replace the drum slides at the front, the plastic bushing in the rear of the drum, and the seal at the rear of the drum. About $30usd in parts.

I have an old GE dryer model number:DDSR475ET5WW and serial number: GS751155A, and it's taking forever to dry and makes a loud squeaking sound. What could I do without having to bring someone out to look...

Well, odds are the squeaking is a bushing in the rear that is bad. In most older GE machines the drum is mounted by a spindle that sits in a plastic or nylon bushing that extends through the back of the housing. This bushing tends to wear out over time, especially with heavy loads. The bushings are normally held in place with a "C" clip that can be removed easily. This will require major dis-assembly but is worth it compared to paying the price for a "professional" to come do it. As for the drying time, there are many factors. If the bushing is worn badly enough it may be slowing the drum which will result in longer drying times. There may be lint build up in the duct work inside the machine itself. Another thing to check is kinks in the vent hose. One not so obvious cause is a large rise in the vent hose. If your vent hose has to travel up a wall, for each foot of rise you cause a little more "back pressure" to build up. This causes inadequate ventilation and keeps the moist hot air built up inside the dryer. As well you migiht want to check your outdoor exhaust and be sure nothing is built up or clogging it.

Replace bearing and bushing g.e. profile dryer

Yes, but you will have to swing the top open, remove the dryer front, and pull the drum forward about 4 inches (leaving belt on drum) to gain access to the bushing. Normally that is all you have to replace, but also check for wear on the front drum slides at the same time.

GE dryer, black grease stain on cloth

I have the same problem, I haven't resolved it but it seems to be due to the drum of the dryer being able to move more than it's supposed to and things getting caught in between the drum and whatever it sits in, at the front of the dryer. I have found things caught in there before and when I've pulled them out they had a brown/yellow grease stain on them. Other times something in the dryer will have this same stain - although no longer caught it seems it must have been caught at some point then became free again, with the stain. I'm thinking something is loose or if the drum is supported at the back by a bearing of some sort, this bearing may be worn down and the drum isn't sitting right.
